Yes (that is, no: I did not restart it; if I try to use xrandr during
X init or even just to plug in the second monitor, the behaviour of X 
and then fvwm is weird and random).

You got the problem right :) I restarted fvwm, and the focusing "bug"
is fixed, thanks a lot! However, there is another thing: 
"smart placement" does *not* want to place windows on my second monitor 
(though other programs like firefox use the second monitor freely). 
This is not a big deal, of course, but it's a sign that not all parts 
of fvwm understand the new size even after restart.

Thanks a lot!

Best regards,
